    Christie Had Secret Weight-Loss Surgery

    Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, whose long struggle with obesity has been raised as a political liability, secretly underwent weight-loss surgery three months ago, according to a statement from his office.

    The surgery, which took place on Feb. 16, involved the placement of a silicone band around his stomach to reduce its size, limiting the amount of food he can take in but not altering his digestive process.

    Or, he just wants to lose weight.

    I've known people that looked into this, and it is brutal. This isn't an "easy" fix like some would suggest. In fact, I wonder why people don't just do the mandatory diet that follows the surgery.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    I heard about a new "breakthrough" diet that the Governor may want to look into. Its called the DON'T-EAT-SO-DAMN-MUCH diet.

    that's pretty much what i did in 2005. i wasn't heavy enough for surgery, and it would have been a mistake anyway. honestly, though, i wouldn't recommend it. just run a reasonable calorie deficit and exercise more. once the weight's off, keep doing it, but cut back the deficit some. that's the best way to keep weight off long term. starvation results in muscle loss, and it isn't sustainable.

    I lost 40 lbs last year by using My Fitness Pal. It told me how many calories I was eating and I moderated from there. Easy-peezy. Was I ever hungry? Yes. Did I learn quickly to eat low calorie items to fill me up? Hellz to the ya. Plus I ate a lot of stuff that I didn't use to. Like, strawberry salad with raspberry vinaigrette, roasted salmon (at a steak place...are you kidding me?), chicken and so on.

    Its funny, now I prefer the taste of a salad with fruit to a lot of the fatty foods I used to love.

    Christie is not capable of getting the nomination. That said, great for him. He really looked like he could have a heart attack any day. That guy is/was huge--like fatter than the fat lady at the carnival huge.

    Governor Christie is not likely to be a serious candidate for the Republican 2016 nomination unless he's also discovered a secret surgery that can remove his many liberal policy positions that also weigh him down.

    He is an entertaining personality though - that's probably why many in the entertainment party, i.e. Democrats, seem to like him too.
